Submit A List
Listverse does not pay for submissions. If you submit a list, you are freely donating it to the site for publication if we select it. However, if you send in excellent content that the readers love, you may be selected to join our team of paid Listverse writers.
Before submitting your list make sure it is proof-read and edited. Lists that lack novelty are less likely to be accepted and all lists must conform to the highest standards of the English language. Lists that don’t comply with our terms and conditions and our author’s guide will be rejected without consideration.
We only accept submissions from the US, UK, NZ, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and South Africa.
Hints & Tips
- Lists must be your own work
- Lists Should include 10 items
- Lists should be between 1,500 and 2,000 words (including introduction)
- Include quality online sources (no Wikipedia or editable content) that verify facts for each item on your list
- Format the sources according to section 4 of the Author’s Guide (link above)
- Don’t forget to read the entire Author’s Guide before submitting
